Departments and specialties

Research

Mayo Clinic researchers study potential diagnostic tests and improved treatments and outcomes for adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), including:

  • Medications to lower very long-chain fatty acid levels in your blood
  • Lorenzo's oil, a mixture of chemicals that may help reduce or delay symptoms of ALD by inhibiting the enzyme that causes the lengthening of saturated fatty acids
  • Gene therapy to slow progress of the condition
